Until the middle of the 19th century, the small Jewish community probably used a private prayer room.

In 1858 a synagogue building was built on Klöppelsberg; the women watched the services from a wooden gallery.
After the interior decoration was destroyed under nationalism, it was restored in the mid-1980s.

The six by ten meter interior is covered with groin vaults that rest on corner or wall pillars. T
he women's gallery was reconstructed.
For several years now, regular Jewish services have been held in the building.

Lava-Dome - Deutsches Vulkanmuseum

The Lava Dome is a very special museum in the Volcano Park in the East Eifel. On 700 square metres it is not "museum-like", but spectacular - for children and adults, for absolute newcomers and for those who are pre-informed about volcanism. In the "Land of Volcanoes", a multimedia show tells the story of two violent volcanic eruptions. Images, sounds and projections let you relive them - up close and intense, but fortunately virtual. The "volcano workshop" is a genuine small science centre. At experimental stations, visitors gain a vivid impression of the processes inside the earth. The "Time of the Volcanoes" lets stones speak: Anyone who touches them can hear and see the great eruptions of times gone by. Current seismological data and images from webcams around the world are particularly exciting. And in the round cinema, a fictitious news programme takes your breath away, because here it becomes clear what another eruption of the Laacher See volcano would mean.
